Current: Forbes list of top earning actresses


The World’s Highest-Paid Actresses Of 2019

The world's 10 highest-paid actresses
The world’s 10 highest-paid actresses collectively earned about $315 million between June 1, 2018, and June 1, 2019, before fees and taxes. That’s up 69% since last year, but still far less than the almost $600 million the top 10 leading men pulled in. If these business-focused actresses have their way, that disparity won’t last forever.
